The Delhi Police has registered a case against three Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs for allegedly manhandling and abusing a woman in the assembly premises recently. In her complaint, the woman has accused Oklha AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan, Malviya Nagar MLA Somnath Bharti and Tilak Nagar MLA Jarnail Singh of abusing and thrashing her on June 28, the police said.

“I had gone to see the proceedings of the House, but could not get the pass for the Visitor’s Gallery. And, while I was standing outside the building, a group of men, who were engaged in a scuffle, came towards me. They pushed and shoved me. I was later taken to a room and kicked,” she claimed in her complaint.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh, however, called the development “vendetta politics”. “This is vendetta politics by the Centre. We are surprised that the police has arrested only 15 of our MLAs (since coming to power),” he said at a press conference in the capital. AAP Delhi unit spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said, “The record of Delhi Police has been very poor when it comes to cases against AAP MLAs. The force always faces flak by the judiciary whenever they take such cases to court.”

    Kejriwal's 3 musketiers ! India's political system is beyond imagination and no law can touch them whether they are scamist or doing frauds.

Look at lalu biggest chor of 19 and 21 century but still out and enjoying the same hospitality as other politicians does....koi dandeywala chayay sau maro aur ek count kero y ko....

        These three are good adverts for AAP's secularism.

          Fear of AAP has engulfed BJP to such an extent that they are running like rogue elephants.

            Any complaint against AAP is dishonest and curropt. AAP is pure like Hafeez Saeed

              AAP honesty card has immunity of crime against women. Delhi is not safe for women even elected MLAs are committing crime against women.
